What's new for 2011? 

► The antler point restriction now applies to rural parts 
of Platte County. See Page 4. 

► Unlimited archery antlerless permits are now 
available for Bollinger, Madison and Wayne counties. 
See Page 9. 

► The Kansas City and Columbia/Jefferson City urban 
zone boundaries have changed. See Page 1 2. 

► To avoid conflicting with Halloween, the early youth 
portion of the firearms deer hunting season has been 
moved back a week to Nov. 5-6. See Page 1 5. 

► New managed deer hunts have been added and 
several others have been modified. See pages 16-20. 

► The Conservation Department's e-Permits System will 
let hunters buy their permits online, print them 

at home, and have them in hand immediately. See 
Page 26. 

► Deer and turkey permits will have months 
printed along one edge and dates along another. 
Immediately after harvest, hunters must void their 
permit by notching the month and day they shot 
their deer or turkey. See Page 27. 

► Deer and turkey permits will no longer include a 
removable transportation tag. Instead, the permit 
itself will be the transportation tag. See Page 27. 

► Deer and/or turkey hunting regulations have 
changed for St. Stanislaus, Duck Creek and Little River 
conservation areas. See pages 36-44. 






First deer or 
turkey awards 



t 




It's hard to beat the excitement of taking your first 
deer or turkey. To help you commemorate this major 
milestone, the Conservation Department has created 
special online certificates for kids and adults. Use 
them to record details about the big event, then print 
them out at home or send them to a print shop for 
professional printing. Download the certificates at 
mdc.mo.gov/node/1 0469. 



Deer Harvest: Inside the Numbers 




) C?S 




A look at several details of the 2010 deer season provides some 
interesting — and perhaps surprising — results. 



In 201 0, the Conservation Department issued archery deer 
and turkey permits to 1 77,061 people. Firearms deer hunt- 
ing permits were issued to 487,533 people. Factoring in 
hunters who bought both archery and firearms deer hunting 
permits leads to a total of 507,068 individuals who received 
some type of deer hunting permit. 

During the past deer season, eighteen percent of archery 
hunters harvested one deer, 3 percent harvested two, and 
1 percent harvested three or more. Firearms hunters had a 
higher success rate with 36 percent harvesting at least one 
deer, 6 percent harvesting two, and 2 percent harvesting 
three or more. Of the 507,068 individuals with a deer hunting 
permit, 38 percent harvested at least one deer, 7 percent har- 
vested two deer, and 3 percent harvested three or more deer. 

Buck harvest is always a topic of great interest to Missouri 
hunters. Missouri has a three-buck limit, meaning that hunt- 
ers may harvest two bucks on archery permits and one buck 
on a firearms permit. In 201 0, 1 9 percent of deer hunters 
harvested a buck. Fewer than 4,500 harvested two bucks, and 
only 194 harvested three bucks. 

Doe harvest, however, is the real key to managing deer 
numbers. As we reach our management goals of stabilizing 
or reducing deer numbers in many parts of rural Missouri, 



some changes to the availability of antlerless permits may be 
necessary. The pattern of antlerless permit use is extremely 
informative in predicting how antlerless harvest might 
change with reduced permit availability. Unlimited archery 
and firearms antlerless permits are available to hunters in a 
number of Missouri counties. Despite the unlimited avail- 
ability of antlerless permits only 1 percent of archery hunters 
and 2 percent of firearms hunters harvest three or more deer. 
Of the 9,270 individuals harvesting deer on archery antlerless 
permits, 93 percent harvested two or fewer antlerless deer. Of 
the 65,026 individuals harvesting deer on firearms antlerless 
permits, 95 percent harvested two or fewer antlerless deer. 
Hunter densities and harvest patterns vary from county 
to county. Yet, ifwetakea broad-scale look at the harvest 
impacts of reducing antlerless permits from unlimited to one, 
we would predict a 1 0-1 5 percent decrease in total antlerless 
harvest. If we went from unlimited antlerless to two antler- 
less permits, we might expect a 5-8 percent decrease in total 
antlerless harvest. As we continue to investigate ways for 
managing deer numbers, an additional category of antler- 
less permits could provide a finer degree of control than 
what is currently provided by no, one, or unlimited antlerless 
permits. 



Don't hunt over bait 

Deer and turkeys may not be hunted with 
the aid of bait. If you put out food for deer 
or turkeys in an area you intend to hunt, be 
sure to mark your calendars with a date to 
remove all food. See below for guidelines on 
baiting. 

► Use of bait while hunting — which 
includes grain or other feed placed 
or scattered so as to attract deer or 
turkeys — is illegal. 

^ An area is considered baited for 1 days, 
even after complete removal of the bait. 

^ A hunter can be in violation even if he or 
she did not know an area was or is baited. 

► It is illegal to place bait in a way that 
causes others to be in violation of the 
baiting rule. 

► Doe urine and other scents such as apple, 

acorn and persimmon may be used to attract deer 
while hunting, as long as the scents are not used on or 
with grain and other food products. 

^ Mineral blocks, including salt, are not considered bait, 
however, mineral blocks that contain grain or other 
food additives are prohibited. 




► It is legal to hunt over a harvested crop field, but it is 
not legal to add grain or other crops such as apples to 
the field after it has been harvested. 

^ Manipulating crops, such as mowing or knocking 
them down, is not considered baiting for deer and 
turkeys; however, it is illegal to hunt waterfowl over 
manipulated crops. 



Feral hog regulations for firearms deer and turkey hunting seasons 




Feral hogs may be taken in any number throughout the 
year. During most of the year, no permit is required and any 
method, including baiting and the use of dogs, is allowed. 
However, special restrictions apply during the fall firearms 
deer and turkey hunting seasons. 

During all portions of the fall firearms deer season: 

► you must possess a valid, unfilled firearms deer or small 
game hunting permit; 

► you must abide by the methods of pursuit allowed for 
deer listed on Page 11; 

► you must abide by any other restrictions that may apply 
on specific public areas. 

During the November portion statewide and the 

antlerless portion in open areas: 

^ if you have a deer permit you may only use methods 

allowed for deer; 
^ if you have a small game permit you may only use a 

.22 caliber or smaller rimfire cartridge or a shotgun with 

shot not larger than No. 4; 
^ you may not use dogs to pursue feral hogs during these 

portions of the firearms deer season. 



During the youth and muzzleloader portions statewide, 

and the urban zones portion in open areas: 

^ if you have a deer permit you may use methods allowed 

for deer; 
^ if you have a small game permit you may use methods 

allowed for small game. 

During the fall firearms turkey hunting season: 

► if you are hunting on a Fall Firearms Turkey Hunting 
Permit, you may only use methods allowed for turkey. 

► if you are hunting on a small game hunting permit, you 
may use methods allowed for small game. 

Note: Resident landowners and lessees on their land are 
not required to have any permit, and they may use any 
method or means to take feral hogs throughout the year, 
including during all portions of the firearms deer and 
turkey hunting seasons. 

^ Report sightings by calling 573-522-41 1 5, ext. 3147. 
^ For more information, go to: mdc.mo.gov/7849. 



Antler-Point Restriction in Selected Areas 




In the following areas shown in orange on the map below, 
only bucks that have at least four antler points on one side of 
their rack may be taken during the archery and firearms deer 
hunting seasons (except the youth portions): 

• Counties 
of Adair, 
Andrew, 
Atchison, 
Audrain, 
Barton, Bates, 
Benton, Boone, 
Buchanan, 
Caldwell, 
Callaway, 
Camden, Carroll, 
Cedar, Chariton, 
Clark, Clinton, 
Cole, Cooper, 
Daviess, DeKalb, 
Gasconade, 
Gentry, Grundy, 
Harrison, Henry, 

Hickory, Holt, Howard, Johnson, Knox, Lafayette, Lewis, Lincoln, 
Linn, Livingston, Macon, Maries, Marion, Mercer, Miller, Moniteau, 
Monroe, Montgomery, Morgan, Nodaway, Osage, Pettis, Phelps, 
Pike, Pulaski, Putnam, Ralls, Randolph, Ray, Saline, Schuyler, 
Scotland, Shelby, St Clair, Ste. Genevieve, Sullivan, Vernon, Warren 
and Worth 

• Portions of Cass, Franklin, Jefferson and Platte counties NOT 
included in the urban zones. See description of boundaries on 
pages 12-13. 




How to count points 

In areas shown in orange on the map to the left, an 
antlered deer must have at least four points on one side to 
be taken. Each of the following counts as a point: 

• an antler point, if it is at least 1 -inch long 

• the brow tine, if it is at least 1 -inch long 

• the end of the main beam 

• any broken tine that is at least 1 -inch long. 



#3 

broken tine 

at least 
1 -inch long 

#4 

brow tine 

at least 

1-inch long 

Tines, main beams and brow tines all count as a point if they 
are at least 1-inch long. A buck with the seven-point rack 
above with three points on one side (labeled in black) and four 
on the other (labeled in orange) is a legal deer in the areas 
shown in orange on the map to the left. Note: If you harvest 
a buck that has shed its antlers or broken the antlers off 
less than 3 inches from their base, record the harvest on 
Telecheck as an antlered buck with points. 




Hunting tips for areas with antler-point restriction 

Bring binoculars and give yourself plenty of time to count antler points before you take a shot. Wait for a buck that has at least 
four points on one side. 




Successful hunters wait for the best shot- 
when the deer turns broadside. Learn 
to recognize antlers from this view to 
minimize errors in the field. 




*■ ■ ■ 




**** ""**y>\ 



Don't be fooled by size. The buck on the left has a large rack; but it has only three 
points on each side, just like the one on the right. Both of these deer are illegal 
under the four-point restriction. 



Legal to take 

Does, button bucks and bucks with 
spikes less than 3 inches are legal 
to take on Antlerless orAny-Deer 
Permits; but for deer management, it 
is better to take does.

Bucks with at least four points on one side 




A legal buck must have a minimum of four points on one side, regardless of 
the number of points on the other side, like the seven-point buck above.

future. 



General Regulations for All Deer and Turkey Hunters 




Deer and turkeys may be pursued, taken, killed, possessed or 
transported only as outlined in this booklet. 

Firearms safety 

Firearms safety is the first responsibility of every hunter. All 
hunters must be familiar with and follow the rules of safe 
firearms handling. 

Hunter-orange requirements 

The following persons are required to wear a cap or hat and 
also a shirt, vest or coat of hunter orange so that the color 
is plainly visible from all sides. Camouflage orange does not 
satisfy this requirement. 

• firearms deer hunters during all portions of the firearms 
deer season 

• adults accompanying youths hunting deer on a firearms 
deer hunting permit 

• archery hunters during the youth portions statewide and 
during the urban zones and antlerless portions in open 
areas 

• all hunters (except migratory bird hunters) during the urban 
zones, youth, November and antlerless portions in open 
areas. Note: Fall firearms turkey hunters must wear hunter 
orange in some areas Oct. 7-1 (see Page 1 2). 

The following deer hunters are exempt from the hunter- 
orange requirement: 

• hunters using archery methods within municipal 
boundaries where discharge of firearms is prohibited 

• archery permittees hunting during the muzzleloader 
portion of the firearms deer season 

• hunters on federal or state public hunting areas where 
deer hunting is by archery methods only. Hunter-orange, 
however, is recommended for archery hunters who are 
hunting close to areas open to firearms methods. 

Note: Safety conscious hunters display hunter-orange even 
when it isn't required. Here are some examples: 

• when walking to and from a turkey hunt, especially when 
carrying harvested game 

• when hunting inside a camouflage blind, put hunter orange 
on all sides of the blind 

• when hunting close to areas where firearms hunting is 
allowed 



Beware: When using a camouflage blind, 
other hunters cannot see you even if you 
are legally wearing hunter orange. To be 
safe, tie hunter orange on each side of the 
blind so it can be seen from all sides. 




Definitions 

Deer: White-tailed deer and mule deer. 

Antlered Deer: A deer with at least one antler a mini- 
mum of 3 inches long, except that special restrictions 
apply in 69 counties. See Page 4. 

Take: To hunt, pursue, wound, capture or kill any wildlife 
in any manner. Also includes acts of assistance to other 
persons attempting to take wildlife. 

Taker: A person who takes or attempts to take wildlife. 

Resident: A person who does not claim resident privi- 
leges in another state or country, and whose actual and 
legal residence are both in Missouri and have been for 
at least the last 30 days. 



Methods prohibited 

• Deer and turkeys may not be taken with the use of dogs, 
bait, electronic calls, electronically activated calls or 

live decoys. Scents and minerals, including salt, are not 
considered bait; however, mineral blocks with food additives 
are prohibited. An area is considered baited for 1 days even 
after complete removal of the bait. It is illegal to place bait in 
a way that causes others to be in violation of the baiting rule. 

• Deer may not be hunted, pursued or taken within any area 
enclosed by a fence greater than 7 feet in height, except in 
licensed hunting preserves. 

• Deer and turkeys may not be pursued or taken from or with 
the aid of a motor-driven vehicle. Deer may not be taken 
while they are in a stream or other body of water, or from 
any boat with a motor attached. 

Antlered deer limit 

• Each hunter may take only one antlered deer during the 
firearms deer season. This includes all portions, including 
the two youth portions. 

• If you want to take additional antlered deer, you must hunt 
on an archer's hunting permit during the archery deer sea- 
son or in a managed hunt where antlered deer can be taken. 

Hunter-education requirement 

All hunters born on or after Jan. 1 , 1 967, must complete an 
approved hunter-education program and display their card 
before they can purchase a firearms deer or turkey hunting 
permit unless: 

• they first purchase an Apprentice Hunter Authorization. See 
Page 44 for requirements. 

• they are ages 6-1 5 and will be hunting with a qualified 
mentor. See Page 22. 

Hunters who are hunter-education certified do not have to 
show their card if certification can be verified through the 



Tree-stand safety 



There are many reasons for using elevated tree stands. 
They offer a better vantage point, a larger field of view 
and an earlier view of game. However, they also are 
a major cause of accidents during the deer hunting 

■ seasons. 
The National Bowhunter Education Foundation 
recommends the following safety tips to reduce the risk 
of hunting from elevated tree stands: 

► Practice with your stand at ground level, gradually 
going higher. Several Conservation Department 

■ shooting ranges and outdoor education centers have 
practice poles for free public use. 
^ Know the proper procedure for securing the stand to 
a tree and how to use the stand properly. 

► Read the manufacturer's warnings and instructions 
before each season. 

► Use only stands that meet standards of theTreestand 
Manufacturer's Association (TMA) rated for your 
weight and all gear or equipment you wear or have 
with you on the stand. 

^ Always use a fall arrest system that meets TMA 
standards, which includes a full-body harness rated 

*for your weight and any gear you wear or attach to 
yourself. 
^ Have your fall arrest system attached to the tree from 

the moment you leave the ground, throughout the 

hunt and when you descend to the ground. 
^ Always position yourself so that you step down onto 

your tree stand to test its stability. 
^ Always use a haul line to raise and lower your gear, 

including unloaded firearms, bows and arrows.

National Bowhunter Education Foundation, go to

permit vendor's computer terminal. Most hunters using 
the e-Permits System will have their hunter-education 
certification verified online. Those who are not in the 
Conservation Department's permit database will be alerted by 
the e-Permits System to mail, fax or email a copy of the front 
and back of their hunter-education card to the Conservation 
Department. After this information is verified and the hunter's 
record is updated in the database, the hunter will not be 
required to submit his or her hunter-education card for an 
e-Permit again. 

A person must be at least 1 1 years old to receive hunter- 
education certification. People hunting with resident 
landowner permits are exempt from the hunter-education 
requirement unless they were born on or after Jan. 1 , 1 967, 
and are mentoring a firearms hunter who is not hunter- 
education certified. 




Is your firewood 
harboring a killer? 

Insects and diseases can 
hitchhike in YOUR firewood. 

Don't give bad bugs a ride! 

► Leave firewood at home. 

► Get firewood at your destination. 

^ Burn all the firewood you have at your campsite. 

Alert! It is illegal to remove hardwood firewood from 
Wayne County due to the presence of the emerald ash 
borer, a firewood-hitchhiking beetle. 

For more information, go to mdc.mo.gov/firewood. 
Thanks for protecting Missouri's beautiful forests! 



Assisting other deer and turkey hunters 

A person must have a filled or unfilled turkey hunting permit 
to call turkeys for another hunter. Also, a person must have a 
filled or unfilled deer hunting permit to assist others in pursu- 
ing or taking deer, which includes participating in deer drives 
or enticing deer with calls or rattling antlers. It is illegal to 
shoot or take a deer or turkey for another hunter. Note: Party 
hunting where hunters pool their tags is prohibited. 

Purple paint law 

Landowners may post or define the boundaries of their prop- 
erty by marking trees and fence posts with purple paint. In a 
court of law, a property boundary marked with purple paint is 
the same as posting "No Trespassing" signs. 

Tree stands placed on 
Conservation Department areas 

Only portable tree stands may be placed or used only 
between Sept. 1 and Jan. 31 on Conservation Department 
areas. Unattended stands must be plainly labeled on durable 
material with the full name and address, or Conservation I.D. 
number of the owner and be removed from the area before 
Feb. 1 . Use of nails, screw-in steps or any material that would 
damage the tree is prohibited. 

Retrieval of game 

Anyone who kills or injures a deer or turkey must make a 
reasonable effort to retrieve and include the animal in his or 
her season limit, but this does not authorize trespass. It is a 
violation to wantonly leave or abandon commonly edible por- 
tions of game. 



Use of dogs to recover legally taken game 

A hunter can use leashed dogs to track and recover mor- 
tally wounded deer or turkeys, provided the hunter: (1 ) has 
exhausted other reasonable means of finding the animal, (2) 
contacts a conservation agent, (3) does not possess firearms 
or bows during dog-tracking activities, and (4) maintains 
control of the leashed dog at all times. 
Note: Use of dogs to recover game does not authorize 
trespass. 

Keep deer carcasses out of streams and lakes 

It is illegal to place a deer carcass or any of its parts into any 
well, spring, brook, branch, creek, stream, pond or lake. 

Labeling game 

All harvested deer and turkeys, either whole or processed, 
must be labeled with the taker's full name, address and 
Telecheck confirmation number. 

Giving away deer and turkeys 

A hunter who takes a deer or turkey may give it to another 
person, but the game counts toward the taker's bag limit. 
Deer and turkeys that are given away must be labeled with 
the taker's full name, address, Telecheck confirmation number, 
species and the date taken. 

Possession, storage and sale 

Properly checked deer and turkeys may be possessed 
by anyone if labeled with the taker's full name, address, 
Telecheck confirmation number, species and the date taken. 
The Telecheck confirmation number must remain attached to 
the carcass until a processor begins the act of processing the 
meat for packaging. 

Deer left at commercial processing or cold storage plants 
must be claimed by May 1 following the season taken or the 
owner will be in violation of Rule 3 CSR 10-4.140. 

Turkeys may not be possessed after Feb. 15 following the 
season taken. 



Legally obtained turkey bones and feathers, and deer 
heads, antlers, hides and feet may be sold by the taker, but 
the taker must provide a bill of sale showing: 

• the taker's full name and address, 

• the species and number of the parts, 

• the full name and address of the buyer. 

For deer heads and/or antlers attached to skull plates, a 
dated bill of sale identifying the seller must be retained while 
the heads or antlers are in the buyer's possession. 

Any person who finds a dead deer with antlers still 
attached to the skull plate may take the antlers, but must 
report the find to a conservation agent within 24 hours to 
receive authorization to possess the antlers. 

No authorization is needed to possess, buy and sell shed 
antlers not attached to the skull plate. 

Shooting dogs is illegal 

Although landowners have some recourse if dogs are injuring 
or killing livestock under Missouri Revised Statutes, Section 
273.030, dogs that merely enter private property may not 
be killed. In fact, Section 578.01 2 provides penalties for 
intentionally killing a dog or other animal. 

Anyone killing a dog under circumstances other than 
the narrow ones described above can expose themselves to 
significant legal difficulty. Those who kill dogs may be forced 
to pay restitution and/or face criminal charges. Because 
dogs are considered personal property, dog killings are 
investigated by local law enforcement authorities, not by 
conservation agents. 

It is illegal for persons to trespass on private property 
without permission. Ethical hunters who use dogs do their 
best to keep them off property where dogs are not wanted, 
and should contact the property owner for permission to 
retrieve them when their dogs follow game onto such private 
property. The Conservation Department works with the 
Sporting Dog Association of Missouri and other groups to 
encourage legal and ethical hunting activities and to establish 
good relationships with private landowners. 



Hu 



unting other game during the firearms deer hunting season 



If you hunt small game during the firearms deer season, you 
must have a small game permit or exemption. Before taking 
small game and furbearers, be sure the season is open for 
that particular animal. 

During the November and antlerless portions of the 
firearms deer season from Nov. 1 2-22 statewide and 
Nov. 23-Dec. 4 in open areas (see map on Page 1 4), other 
wildlife may be hunted only with a .22 caliber or smaller rim- 
fire or a shotgun and shot not larger than No. 4. However, this 
does not apply to waterfowl hunters, trappers, landowners 
on their own land, or lessees on land they lease and live on. 




During daylight hours from Nov. 1 -22 statewide and also 
Nov. 23-Dec. 4 in areas open during the antlerless portion 
(see map on Page 14), furbearers may not be chased, pur- 
sued or taken with the aid of dogs. 

During daylight hours of the November portion of the 
firearms deer hunting season from Nov. 1 2-22, squirrels and 
rabbits may not be chased, pursued or taken with the aid of 
dogs in Butler, Carter, Dent, Iron, Madison, Oregon, Reynolds, 
Ripley, Shannon or Wayne counties. 

Special regulations also apply when pursuing feral hogs. 
See Page 3. 



Season dates 

• Sept. 1 5-Nov. 1 1 

• Nov. 23, 2011 -Jan. 15,2012

• Special regulations apply when pursuing feral hogs during 
the firearms turkey season. See Page 3. 

Safety sticker requirement 

All hunters using a shotgun must affix the "Be Safe" sticker 
to the receiver of their gun so it will be in their line of sight 
when shooting. The sticker must be maintained on the gun 
while hunting. Stickers are available at permit vendors and 
Conservation Department offices. 



Basic rules for safe turkey hunting 

► Wear hunter orange when walking through the turkey woods. If you 
bag a turkey, wrap it in hunter orange before carrying it out. 

► Dress defensively; never wear red, white, blue or black in the turkey 
woods. 

► Always see the turkey clearly before you shoot; never shoot at sound or 
movement. 

► Shout to reveal your presence to an approaching hunter; never wave or 
whistle. 

► Pattern your shotgun to learn its effective range, and learn to accurately 
judge distances. Remember: 30 yards is about the limit for a clean kill. 

► Remain calm and rational; never let excitement, nerves or panic rule 
your behavior. 

► Assume every sound or movement is another hunter until you can 
safely identify it as otherwise. 




10 



The firearms deer hunting season is made up of the following 
portions that provide hunters with many opportunities to take 
deer while helping to maintain a healthy deer population. 

• Urban zones: Oct. 7-10 only in selected areas 

• Early youth: Nov. 5-6 statewide 

• November: Nov. 12-22 statewide 

• Antlerless: Nov. 23-Dec. 4 only in selected areas

• Late youth: Jan. 7-8, 201 2, statewide 

Season limit 

• Each hunter may take only one antlered deer during the 
firearms deer season (all portions combined). If you want to 
take additional antlered deer, you must hunt on an archer's 
hunting permit during the archery season or on a managed 
hunt permit during a managed hunt. 

• All hunters may purchase any number of permits to take 
antlerless deer, but some county restrictions apply. See map 
on Page 23.

• one-half hour before sunrise to one-half hour after sunset 

Valid permits 

• Resident or Nonresident Firearms Any-Deer Hunting Permit 

• Resident or Nonresident Firearms Antlerless Deer Hunting 
Permit 

• Resident Landowner Firearms Any-Deer Hunting Permit 

• Resident Landowner Firearms Antlerless Deer Hunting 
Permit 



Methods allowed 

Methods allowed during all portions of the firearms deer 
season, except the muzzleloader portion (see Page 14). 

• centerfire pistol, revolver or rifle using expanding-type 
bullets. Legal ammunition includes lead bullets, copper 
bullets and bullets made of other material designed to 
expand. 

• shotgun (including .41 0) with slugs only 

• air-powered gun, .40 caliber or larger, charged only from 
an external high compression power source (external hand 
pump, air tank, or air compressor) 

• a muzzleloading or cap-and-ball firearm .40 caliber or 
larger and capable of firing only a single projectile at one 
discharge; in-lines and scopes are allowed 

• multiple-barreled muzzleloading or cap-and-ball firearms 
and/or muzzleloading or cap-and-ball handguns, including 
revolvers, .40 caliber or larger are allowed and may be car- 
ried in addition to a muzzleloading or cap-and-ball rifle 

• a longbow, compound bow or recurve bow of any draw 
weight; hand-held string releasing devices, illuminated 
sights, scopes and quickpoint sights are allowed 

• crossbow 

• atlatl, which is defined as a rod or narrow board-like device 
used to launch, through a throwing motion of the arm, a 
dart 5 to 8 feet in length. 

Methods prohibited (in use or in possession) 

• self-loading firearms with capacity of more than 1 1 
cartridges in magazine and chamber combined 

• ammunition propelling more than one projectile at a single 
discharge (such as buckshot) 

• full hard metal case projectiles 

• fully automatic firearms 

• any sighting device that casts a beam of light on the game 

• electronic calls or electronically activated calls 



Hunters, meat processors can reduce lead risk 



Recent studies have shown that people who eat venison 
taken with lead-based ammunition may be exposed to 
lead bullet fragments in the meat. Removal of the tissue 
immediately around the wound area will reduce, but likely 
will not eliminate exposure to lead. 

Health officials in Missouri and several other states 
have reviewed this information and concluded that lead in 
venison is a concern, but not a human health crisis. They 
note that millions of deer and other big game animals 
are taken by hunters each year to help control big-game 
populations. However, caution is advised for young 
children, or women of child-bearing age. Children less than 
6 years of age are particularly sensitive to lead exposure 



because of their developing bodies. Concerns for lead 
exposure also extend to pregnant women and women 
of childbearing age because they can pass lead to their 
unborn children. 

The selection of ammunition for hunting deer and 
turkeys in Missouri is a matter of personal choice. The 
Conservation Department strives to make the most current 
knowledge available so hunters can make informed 
decisions. For those concerned about this information, 
one solution is to use expanding copper or other nonlead 
ammunition that is available at most ammunition outlets. 
For more information on lead and venison, go to 
mdc.mo.gov/hunt/deer. 



11 



201 1-2012 Firearms Deer Hunting Season (continued) 



Urban zones portion 

Hunters must abide by all city and county ordinances 
regarding trespass and use of equipment. Local governments 
may restrict the methods allowed for hunting. For example, 
some cities allow only archery methods. Call your local city 
hall and check local ordinances before you hunt. 

Note: Only antlerless deer may be harvested during 
the urban zones portion. 

Season dates 

• Oct. 7-1 only in open areas; see maps 

Methods 

• All legal deer hunting methods listed on Page 1 1 are 
allowed by the Conservation Department. However, if a 
local government does not allow a certain method, you 
must hunt using only the methods allowed in that area. 

The Conservation Department will join with the 
Conservation Federation of Missouri and community 
sponsors to cover the costs of all whole deer donated to 
the Share the Harvest program during the urban zones 
portion. For a list of participating processors, contact your 
regional Department office. See inside front cover. 




These areas are open during the urban zone 
although some methods may be prohibited 
by local ordinances. 



Note: This portion allows for the harvest of antlerless 
deer in areas where deer numbers need to be reduced. 
Therefore, some public land where deer are not abundant 
may be closed to hunting.

class. Go to mdc.mo.gov/8821 for details. 



14 



Youth portions 

To participate, the youth hunter must 
be at least 6 and no older than 1 5 on the 
opening day of the early youth portion. 

Methods 

• All legal deer hunting methods listed 
on Page 1 1 are allowed. 

Note: The antler-point restriction does 
not apply during the youth portions. 
However, it does apply during the rest 
of the season. 

Early portion 

• Nov. 5-6 statewide 

• Limit: one deer, which may be of 
either sex 

Note: Only 1 deer can betaken. If you 
have more than one permit, you must 
use them in another portion. 



Valid permits for both youth portions 

Youth may use any of the following permits: 

► Resident Landowner Firearms Any-Deer Hunting Permit (if hunting on 
qualifying land) 

► Resident Landowner Firearms Antlerless Deer Hunting Permit (if hunting on 
qualifying land) 

► Resident or Nonresident Firearms Any-Deer Hunting Permit 

► Resident or Nonresident Firearms Antlerless Deer Hunting Permit 

If the youth is not hunter-education certified, he or she must hunt in the 
immediate presence of a qualifying mentor. See Page 22. 



• 



Late portion 

• Jan. 7-8, 201 2, statewide 

Youth can take deer according to the 
permits they hold, however: 

• Only one antlered deer may be taken 
during the entire firearms deer season. 
So if the youth has already taken one 



antlered deer during one of the other 
portions of the firearms deer season, 
he or she may not take another during 
this portion. 

► Any number of permits may be 
purchased to take antlerless deer, but 
some county restrictions apply. See 
map on Page 23. 



Scheduling youth hunts 



One of the goals of the Missouri 
Department of Conservation 
is to provide quality hunting 
opportunities for Missouri's youth. 
These special youth hunts sometimes 
coincide with holidays and other hunt- 
ing seasons. The Conservation Depart- 
ment strives to minimize such conflicts. 
However, conflicts are inevitable for a 
number of reasons. 

• The special youth hunting seasons 
must be held on weekends so youth 
can participate without missing 
school. 

• There are many opportunities for fall 
and winter youth hunting seasons, 
including those for deer (early and 
late), pheasant and quail, and water- 
fowl (in three different zones); but 
the number of weekends available is 
limited. 

• Youth hunting seasons are typically 
scheduled prior to the opening of 
the "regular" season to maximize the 
chance of successful harvest. 

• Several holidays, including Halloween, 
Thanksgiving, Christmas and New 




Years' Day, occur within the relatively 
brief time available for fall and winter 
hunting. 

There is no question that the number 
and variety of fall hunting opportunities 
sometimes creates conflict. On the other 



hand, Missourians have an abundance 
of hunting opportunities from which to 
choose. The special youth opportunities 
provide an important introduction to 
hunting and allow adults to mentor the 
next generation of hunters. 



15 



201 1 -201 2 Managed Deer Hunts 




M 



issouri offers numerous managed deer hunts for 
archery, crossbow, muzzleloading and modern 
I firearms from mid-September through January. 
These hunts achieve deer management goals while also 
providing additional hunting opportunity. Hunters are 
selected by a weighted random drawing system. 

Note: Participants in all managed hunts except those limited 
to archery or crossbow methods must wear hunter orange. 

Limit 

A single Managed Deer Hunting Permit allows each hunter 
to take the number of deer allowed at the hunt he or she is 
attending. Some hunts allow one deer, others two and some 
three. 

Note: Deer taken at a managed deer hunt do not count 
toward the regular season bag limit. 

Valid permits 

• Resident or Nonresident Managed Deer Hunting Permit 

Note: Permits are available to successful applicants beginning 
Sept. 1 4 anywhere permits are sold. 

Points to remember 

• Go to mdc.mo.gov/7454 for a summary of how many 
people applied for last year's managed hunts and how many 
deer were taken. 

• If you cannot attend, another hunter cannot take your 
place. Only those hunters who applied and were drawn may 
attend. 



• Some managed hunts require hunters to attend a 
mandatory pre-hunt orientation. If you cannot attend the 
orientation, do not apply for these hunts. 

• If you have a methods exemption, you may use a crossbow 
in an archery managed deer hunt. 

• If you apply as one of a party on the application card or as 
an individual, your chances of being drawn for a managed 
deer hunt are the same as everyone else's. 

• Individuals not drawn for a managed deer hunt may not 
accompany a hunter who was successfully drawn. 

• ATVs are prohibited on the managed deer hunt areas. 

• If you are not drawn for a managed hunt this year, you will 
earn one preference point that will increase your odds the 
next time you apply. 

When to apply for a managed hunt 

• July 1 -Aug. 15 

Who can apply 

If applying for a youth-only hunt, youths must be 1 1 or older 
by the date of the hunt. Youths may apply singly or with one 
other youth hunter, but not as a group. See pages 1 7 and 20. If 
applying for all other hunts, hunters may apply individually or 
as a group of up to six hunters. 

For how many hunts can a hunter apply? 

Each hunter may apply for only one managed deer hunt 
each year. Hunters who apply for more than one will be 
disqualified from this year's drawing and will not receive a 
preference point. 



/^£l Any hunter per- 
V«^ manently confined 
to a wheelchair is 

automatically allowed to participate 

in managed deer hunts at: 

• August A. Busch Memorial 
Conservation Area 



Wheelchair-confined hunters 

• Burr Oak Woods Conservation Area 

• Caney Mountain Conservation Area 

• Clarence Cannon National 
Wildlife Refuge 

• Drury-Mincy Conservation Area 

• Fleming Park (east side) (maximum 
of three wheelchair hunters) 



> James A. Reed Wildlife Area 

> Mingo National Wildlife Refuge 
(maximum of five wheelchair 
hunters) 

> Peck Ranch Conservation Area 

> Prairie Fork Conservation Area 



These hunts are part of the Managed Deer Hunt Program and are not limited to disabled hunters. Mail a written request 
by Aug. 1 5 indicating hunt preference with attached physician's statement to the Jefferson City address on the inside 
front cover, Attn: Managed Deer Hunts. 

Each disabled hunter may be accompanied by an attendant/care-giver while hunting, but that person may not hunt 
unless he or she had applied and was successfully drawn for the same hunt. Wheelchair-confined hunters may participate 
in more than one Managed Deer Hunt, but must purchase a Managed Deer Hunting Permit for each hunt they attend. 






16 



To apply, complete the following steps 

Step 1: Designate one member of your group to go online. 
That person must have ready the following information: 

• the two- or three-digit number for the preferred hunt 

• the nine-digit Conservation I.D. number of each hunter in 
the group. If you need an I.D. number, call 573-751-4115 
during regular business hours to have one assigned. 

Important: To ensure that your preference point earned 
last year is used, be sure to use the same Conservation I.D. 
number you used last year. For future reference, print your 
confirmation page and save it. 

Note: A Social Security number is not the same as a 
Conservation I.D. number. Your Conservation I.D. number is 
located on the back of your Conservation Heritage Card and 
on your permit. 

Step 2: Complete the worksheet on this page before going 
online so you will have all the information ready. 

Step 3: Go online at mdc.mo.gov/hunt/deer. If you have 
correctly entered all the required information, you will see a 
message confirming your application. 



Step 4: Print your confirmation page or write down your 
confirmation number, and save it for future reference. 

To find out if you've been selected 

From Sept. 14 through Dec. 31, go online to see if youVe been 
selected. Be prepared to enter your nine-digit Conservation 
I.D. number (the same I.D. number you used when you 
applied) when you check the drawing results. You also must 
provide your same Conservation I.D. number when you buy 
your Managed Deer Hunting Permit. 

All successful applicants will receive in the mail an area 
map and other information regarding the hunt. We must 
have your correct address so you will receive the information 
you need. If your address has changed, contact your local 
Department office during regular business hours. See inside 
front cover. 

Successful applicants can purchase their permit beginning 
Sept. 1 4 wherever permits are sold. 

Note: The odds for drawing a particular hunt are available 
at mdc.mo.gov/7454 or by calling a Department office. See 
inside front cover. 




Youth-only managed hunts 

There are 1 1 youth-only managed deer hunts for youths 
ages 1 1 through 1 5 (see Page 20). Application and 
notification processes for 10 of the 11 hunts are the 
same as for regular managed hunts except that youth 
hunters may only apply singly or with one other youth 
hunter. All successful applicants will be notified by mail. 
Youths who apply for a youth-only hunt may not also 
apply for a "regular" managed deer hunt. 

Those drawn to participate must: 

► purchase a Resident or Nonresident Managed Deer 
Hunting Permit; 

► be accompanied by an adult sponsor (age 1 8 or older) 
who is hunter-education certified or exempt, and has 
a filled or unfilled firearms deer hunting permit; 

► attend a pre-hunt orientation with their adult 
sponsor at some locations; and 

► obtain hunter-education certification before the 
managed hunt or pre-hunt orientation. 

Note: Hunter-education certification is not required to 
apply for a managed hunt, but must be achieved before 
the hunt. Minimum age to enroll in a hunter-education 
course is 1 1 . Adult sponsors born before Jan. 1 , 1 967, are 
exempt from the hunter-education requirement.

Weighted random drawing increases odds for future managed hunts 



Each time you apply for a managed 
deer hunt but are not drawn you 
earn one preference point. The 
next time you apply, either this year or 
some year in the future, your name will 
be entered into the drawing — once for 
the current application year and once 
for each preference point. If you're 
not drawn again, you'll earn another 
preference point and all your points will 
automatically be used the next time you 
apply. 

You will continue to accumulate 
preference points — one for each unsuc- 
cessful application year — until you 
are drawn. Every year you apply for a 
managed deer hunt the number of times 
your name will be entered into the draw- 
ing will equal your number of preference 
points plus one for the current applica- 
tion year. When you are drawn for a hunt, 
your preference points total goes to zero. 

You do not have to apply for a man- 
aged deer hunt every year to keep your 
points. Your points are valid for your 
lifetime whether you enter the drawing 




each year or not, and the system will 
remember how many points you have 
and will store them until the next time 
you apply. 

While your odds of being drawn will 
increase as you accumulate preference 



Important: don't lose points 

Some hunters may have more than one Conservation I.D. number. Preference 
points will be stored by Conservation I.D. number, so be sure you use the same 
number each year you apply. When applying, print your confirmation page and 
save it for future reference. 



points, luck still plays an important role. 
It's possible that someone with no points 
will be drawn over someone who has 
preference points. However, your odds 
of being drawn increase with each point 
you earn. 

This drawing process gives all hunters 
a chance to be drawn for a hunt each 
year. However, hunters with preference 
points will have a statistical advantage. 
In the case of hunters who apply as a 
party, the group's preference point aver- 
age will be used in the drawing.

201 1 -201 2 Deer and Turkey Permits 




Anyone who hunts, takes or attempts to take wildlife 
in any way must have the prescribed permit(s). Each 
hunter must sign, carry and show, upon request, his 
or her permit to any officer who enforces the Wildlife Code of 
Missouri. 

Points to remember 

• You must have your signed permit in hand when you go 
afield to hunt. 

• Permits cannot be exchanged or refunded. 

• Permits may be used in any order, and multiple permits may 
be filled on the same day. 

• Residents do not have to purchase a Firearms Any- 
Deer Hunting Permit or Archer's Hunting Permit before 
purchasing Antlerless Deer Hunting Permits. 

• Before purchasing antlerless deer hunting permits, 
nonresidents must first purchase a Nonresident Firearms 
Any-Deer Hunting Permit or a Nonresident Archer's Hunting 
Permit, depending on the type of antlerless permit they 
want to use. 

• You do not have to purchase your any-deer and antlerless 
deer permits at the same time, but most hunters prefer to 
buy more than one firearms permit before the season opens 
so they can take full advantage of harvest opportunities 
when they occur. 

Permits for youth 6 through 1 5 

Youth age 6 through 1 5, whether they are hunter-education 
certified or not, can purchase resident or nonresident deer 
and turkey hunting permits at reduced prices. See pages 
23-24. 

If the youth is hunter-education certified and hunting on 
a resident or nonresident firearms deer or turkey hunting 
permit, he or she may hunt alone. However, if the youth is 
not hunter-education certified, he or she must hunt in the 
immediate presence of a properly licensed adult hunter 
who has in his or her possession a valid hunter-education 
certification card or was born before Jan. 1 , 1 967. The adult, 
however, may not hunt deer during the youth portions of the 
firearms deer season. 

• "Immediate presence" means close enough for normal 
conversation, without shouting. 

• "Properly licensed" means a valid firearms hunting permit 
for the appropriate season (i.e., either a filled or unfilled 
Firearms Deer or a Fall Firearms Turkey Hunting Permit). 

• "Adult" means someone age 1 8 or older. 

In addition, adults accompanying youths hunting deer 
must wear hunter orange. Regardless of age, the youth must 
be capable of holding, aiming and shooting the firearm by 
him or herself. 



Who may purchase resident deer and turkey 
permits? 

• Any person who does not claim resident privileges in 
another state or country, and whose actual residence and 
legal permanent home address are both in Missouri, and 
have been for at least 30 days before applying for the 
permit. Owning real estate or attending a Missouri school 
does not in itself make you a legal resident. 

• Missouri residents employed by the United States in the 
District of Columbia or serving in the U.S. armed forces. 
(Immediate family members who reside with them also may 
purchase resident permits.) 

• All members of the U.S. armed forces residing in Missouri on 
permanent change of station status and immediate family 
members residing with them. 

• Any honorably discharged military veteran having a service- 
related disability of 60 percent or greater, or who was a 
prisoner of war during military service; must carry certified 
statement of eligibility from the U.S. Department of Veterans 
Affairs while hunting or purchasing permits. 

• Nonresidents who are registered students attending a 
public or private secondary, post secondary, or vocational 
school in Missouri and who live in Missouri while attending 
school; must carry evidence of a Missouri residence and 
student status while hunting. Note: Nonresident students 
who qualify for resident permits must purchase them at 
Conservation Department offices. 

• Immigrants who possess an 1-551 Resident Alien Card and 
who do not claim resident privileges in another state or 
country, and whose actual residence and legal permanent 
home address are both in Missouri, and have been for at 
least 30 days before applying for the permit. 

Purchasing permits 

You may purchase your fall deer and turkey hunting permits 
beginning July 1 using any of the methods below. 

• Over the counter from any permit vendor. Buy early to avoid 
long lines.

See Page 24 for details. 

Replacing permits: Lost or damaged permits can be replaced 
using any of the methods above. A replacement permit costs 
$2 plus any applicable surcharge. E-Permits can be saved on a 
personal computer and reprinted for free if the original permit 
is lost or damaged. As with other permits, e-Permits may 
not be shared, and additional copies of an e-Permit do not 
provide additional valid permits to use. 



22 



Firearms antlerless permits 

How many firearms antlerless 
permits can you use? 

The number you can fill depends on the counties in 
which you hunt. See map below. 

When can these permits be used? 

They can be used during all portions of the firearms 
deer season, except in areas that are closed during 
the urban zones and antlerless portions. 

Any number of firearms antlerless deer hunting 
permits may be filled. Resident landowners 
and lessees with at least 75 acres may receive 
two no-cost Landowner Antlerless Deer 
Hunting Permits and can also fill any number of 
purchased antlerless permits. 

One firearms antlerless deer hunting permit may 
be filled in these counties. Resident landowners 
and lessees with at least 75 acres may receive 
and fill one no-cost Landowner Antlerless Deer 
Hunting Permit and can also fill one purchased 
antlerless permit. 



Antlerless deer may only be taken on an 
any-deer permit. No firearms antlerless deer 
hunting permits may be filled except, qualifying 
landowners may receive one no-cost antlerless 
permit, which they must fill on their land.

immediate household age 6 or older, may each 
receive: 

• one Landowner Fall Firearms Turkey Hunting Permit, 

• one Landowner Firearms Any-Deer Hunting Permit, 

• one Landowner Archer's Hunting Permit, 

• two Landowner Archery Antlerless Deer Hunting Permits, 
depending upon county availability (see Page 9). 

Qualifying resident landowners and lessees 
who have 75 or more acres located in a single 
county or at least 75 continuous acres bisected 
by a county boundary, and all members of their 
immediate household age 6 or older, may each 
receive: 

• all of the landowner permits listed above, 

• up to two Resident Landowner Firearms Antlerless Deer 
Hunting Permits, depending on county availability (see 
Page 23). 

Qualifying resident landowners and lessees: 

• must abide by season dates, methods, limits and tagging/ 
checking requirements. Refer to the appropriate hunting 
season section for details. 

• must use landowner permits only on their qualifying prop- 
erty. To hunt on other land, landowners and lessees must 
purchase regular permits. 

• may use their landowner permits to take deer on their land 
during all portions of the firearms season including the 
urban zones and antlerless portions (if their property is 
located in one of the open areas). 

• with 75 or more acres in more than one county may not 
harvest more deer on landowner antlerless permits than can 
be taken by regular permittees in the county where hunting 
except in certain areas (see Page 23). 

• may fill a Landowner Any-Deer Permit and a purchased 
any-deer permit. However, each hunter may only take 
one antlered deer during the firearms deer hunting 
season. Therefore, landowners and lessees who take an 
antlered deer on one Any-Deer Permit must take an antler- 
less deer on the other Any-Deer Permit. Note: Deer taken 
on a Managed Deer Hunting Permit or in accordance with 
the archery deer hunting season do not count toward this 
one-antlered-deer limit. 

• may fill their no-cost Landowner Antlerless Permits and 
also purchase and fill any number of additional antlerless 
permits where valid. Note: Resident landowners and lessees 
may also purchase and use permits in addition to the no- 
cost permits. However, only one antlered deer may be taken 
during the firearms season and a maximum of two antlered 
deer may be taken during the archery season. See pages 9 
and 11. 



Attention landowners, 

age 44 and younger who are 

not hunter-education certified 

Qualifying landowners and lessees hunting on their 
own land do not need to be hunter-education 
certified; however, when mentoring a firearms 
hunter who is not hunter-education certified and not 
hunting on a landowner permit, all mentors, including 
landowners and lessees hunting on their own land, 
must be at least 1 8 years old and hunter-education 
certified unless they were born before Jan. 1, 1967. If 
you need to become certified, check out the online 
course at mdc.mo.gov/1 7844, or call a Department 
office near you to sign up for a course. 



Resident landowner permits 

All landowner permits are valid only on qualifying property 
Hunters must be at least 6 years old to obtain landowner 
permits. Hunter-education certification is not required to obtain 
landowner permits.

Use landowner permits wisely 

► To keep costs down and to help provide more 
funding for habitat and wildlife management, ask the 
permit vendor for only the landowner permits that 
you plan to use. 

► It is illegal to allow other hunters to check deer and 
turkeys on your landowner permits. 




25 




The Conservation Department's new e-Permits 
System lets you buy hunting permits online, print 
them at home, and have them in hand immediately. 
You can even reprint lost or damaged permits for free. 
If you're not comfortable buying online, you can still 
purchase permits by phone, at any MDC office or from 
your usual vendor. 

Learn more about e-Permits at mdc.mo.gov/epermits. 

E-Permits will generate some changes for ALL 
deer and turkey hunters. 

► E-permits were designed to be printed at home on 
regular paper. To prevent the paper from becoming 
unreadable, hunters are encouraged to keep e-Permits 
in a plastic sandwich bag while afield. This also will 
make it easier for hunters to write confirmation 
numbers on permits when Telechecking their deer or 
turkeys. 

► Deer and turkey permits will no longer include a 
removable transportation tag. Instead, the permit itself 
will be the transportation tag. 



► Each deer and turkey permit will have months printed 
along one edge and dates along another. Immediately 
after harvest, hunters must notch the month and day 
they bagged their game, then attach the permit to the 
animal. 

► E-Permits will not be printed on adhesive-backed 
material, so hunters will need to provide a way 
to attach the permits to their game. Hunters are 
encouraged to put e-Permits inside plastic sandwich 
bags and attach the bags to their deer or turkeys with 
string, twist-ties, wire, plastic cable ties or tape. 

► Traditional vendors will continue to print deer and 
turkey permits on yellow permit stock, but without the 
adhesive transportation tag. 

► Turkey hunters must still mark their guns with "Be Safe" 
stickers, which are available at permit vendors and 
Conservation Department offices. 

► Deer and turkey hunters must still check their game by 
1 p.m. on the day of harvest using Telecheck.

Tagging and Checking Procedures 



Using the new deer and turkey hunting permits couldn't be easier. 
Just remember: Bag it Notch it Tag it Check it 



STEP! | 

BdCJ it* Protect paper e-Permits in 
a plastic sandwich bag while afield. 




STEP 3 1 



Tag it. Attach the 
notched permit to the 
deer or turkey's leg. We 
recommend sealing 
the permit in a plastic 
sandwich bag and 
attaching the bag to 
the animal's leg with 
string, twist-ties, wire or 
tape. You may now legally 
transport your deer or turkey 
within Missouri. 




STEP 2 1 



Notch it. Immediately after 
harvesting a deer or turkey, notch 
the month and date of harvest on 
your permit.

STEP 4 



Check it. Report your deer 
or turkey by 1 p.m. on the day 
of harvest using theTelecheck 
instructions on Page 29. Write the 
confirmation number provided by 
Telecheck on your permit. You may 
now process your deer or turkey, or 
transport it out of state.

Tagging and Checking Procedures 

Things to remember before tagging and checking 




► Use the correct permit. Because many hunters carry 
multiple permits while deer and turkey hunting, check 
your permit carefully to make sure you're using the right 
one before notching it and attaching it to your game. 

► Notching voids the permit. Do not notch the month and 
day on your permit until you harvest a deer or turkey. 

^ Until checked, heads of deer must remain attached, and 
turkeys must have their heads and plumage intact. 

^ Deer and turkeys must be checked by 1 p.m. on the day 
they were harvested. 

^ All deer and turkeys must be checked before they can be 
removed from Missouri. 



^ Only the person who harvested the deer or turkey may 
possess and transport the game before it has been 
checked. 

► After checking, deer and turkeys may be possessed and 
transported by anyone, but must be labeled with the 
taker's full name, address, Telecheck confirmation number 
and the date taken. 

► Avoid duplicate Telecheck records. If you are given an 
eight-digit Telecheck confirmation number, your checking 
information has been successfully received and recorded. 
Write the confirmation number on the permit, and the 
checking process is complete. Do not call again to check 
the same deer or turkey. 



Information needed to Telecheck turkeys 

Turkeys must be checked by telephone or Internet. See Page 29. 
During checking, hunters will be asked the age and sex of their turkey. 
Monitoring the age and sex of harvested turkeys through checking 
provides a valuable measure of the fall harvest. Aging and sexing turkeys is 
simple. See illustrations. 

How to age a turkey 

To age a turkey, look at the two outermost feathers on the wing (see 
below). The ends of the 9th and 1 0th primary feathers of a juvenile are 
pointed, and the tips of the feathers lack white barring. The ends of the 
9th and 1 0th primary feathers of an adult are rounded and have white 
barring extending to the tips. 




pointed

Adult 




^S& 



How to determine the 
sex of a turkey 

Look at the lower half of the breast. 
Hens have brown-tipped breast 
feathers. Gobblers have black-tipped 
breast feathers. 



Brown tip 





28 



All deer and turkeys must be checked by telephone or 
on the Internet. If using a cell phone, be sure you have 
a clear signal. If the signal is spotty, move closer to a 
major highway, go to higher ground, or wait until you get 
to a land-based line to call. Avoid calling in areas with loud 
background noise. 

You do not need to call Telecheck immediately after tak- 
ing the game. You can transport unchecked game within the 
state, as long as the notched permit is attached to the leg. 
You have until 1 p.m. on the day taken to check your 
deer or turkey. 

To use the easy-to-use electronic checking system, follow 
the steps below. 

Step 1 : Before calling the toll-free number or going online, 
find your Telecheck ID number on your permit. If you have 
more than one permit, be sure you give the number of the 
permit you want to use. Also get a pen so you will be able 
to write your Telecheck confirmation number on your permit. 

Step 2: Fill out the form to the right, which contains the 
same information you will be asked when you use Telecheck. 

Step 3: Use a phone to dial the toll-free number below, then 
follow the instructions in the phone interview. Speak clearly 
and slowly. You can call between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m. 




To check a deer or turkey, call 

1-800-314-6828. 

Or go to: 

mdc.mo.gov 

on the Internet and follow the instructions. 

Step 4: After you have provided the required information, 
you will be given an eight-digit confirmation number that 
verifies you have legally checked your game. Write this num- 
ber on the permit. 

You have now completed checking your game and can 
process your deer or turkey. 



If checking a turkey, you will need: 

► YourTelecheck ID number: 



► Turkey type (To age and sex turkeys, see Page 28): 

I □ adult gobbler 

□ adult hen 

□ juvenile gobbler 

□ juvenile hen 

■ ► County where turkey was taken: 



If checking a deer, you will need: 

► YourTelecheck ID number: 

► Deer type: 

□ doe 

□ button buck 

□ antlered buck 

Record the harvest of a buck as points if the 
buck has one of the following: 

► shed its antlers 

► small antlers with both beams shorter than 
3 inches 

► broken antlers off less than 3 inches from 
their base 

total number of points 1 inch or longer 

(see how to count points on Page 4) 

► County where deer was taken: 



Note: If you harvested deer in Boone, Cass, Christian, 
Cole, Franklin, Jefferson or Platte counties, you will be 
asked: Did you harvest a deer within an urban zone? (See 
Page 12). 



Attention cell phone users 



The most common reason hunters 
are unable to complete theirTelecheck 
transaction is because of a poor cellular 
telephone connection. Signals that are weak, fade 
in and out, or"clip"speech will not work with the system. 
Once youVe attached the temporary transportation 
tag to your deer or turkey, you have until 1 p.m. on the 
day of harvest to check the animal. Wait until you are 
out of the woods and receive a clear, strong cell phone 
connection before placing your Telecheck call.

Mentoring option available for apprentice hunters 



Would you like to share those 
beautiful fall mornings in the 
woods with a good friend or a 
spouse who has never hunted before? 
You know they would love it, but you 
can't get them to invest the time to take 
the hunter-education course. 

To help introduce adults to hunting, 
the Conservation Department allows 
hunters age 1 6 and older who are not 
hunter-education certified to hunt with 
firearms, as long as they: 

• first purchase the Apprentice Hunter 
Authorization for $10; 

• then purchase a firearms hunting 
permit for the season they want to 
hunt, for example a Firearms Any-Deer 
Hunting Permit; 

• hunt in the immediate presence of 
a properly licensed hunter 1 8 years 
old or older who is hunter-education 
certified or was born before Jan. 1 , 
1967. The mentor must have a filled 
or unfilled permit for the prescribed 
season. 

Note: The Apprentice Hunter Autho- 
rization allows the holder to purchase 
firearms permits throughout the permit 




The Apprentice Hunter Authorization provides another opportunity for qualified 
experienced hunters to share their knowledge of the outdoors with novice hunters. 



year, and it can be purchased for two 
permit years. After the second year, the 
apprentice hunter will be required to 
become hunter-education certified if 
he or she wants to continue hunting on 
any firearms permit. 

Missouri is a leader in hunter recruit- 
ment, and the Apprentice Hunter 



Authorization is just one more tool to 
help you share your hunting knowledge 
and tradition with your friends and 
family. Before next year's fall deer and 
turkey season, encourage your appren- 
tices to attend a hunter-education class 
or take the online course. Information is 
available at mdc.mo.gov/8821.

Hunter ethics and safety 






According to the National Safety Council, hunting is a safe 
activity. In fact, hunting results in fewer injuries per 100,000 
participants than do many other sports, including cycling, 
bowling, golf and tennis. However, as with any activity, you 
must always use good judgment and take responsibility for 
your actions. Deer and turkey hunters should follow safe, 
ethical hunting practices. These include: 

► Be sure of your target and beyond before you shoot. 

► Make sure your equipment is in good working condition 
and your firearm is properly sighted in. 

► If you hunt from a tree stand, always wear a safety 
harness. Serious accidents occur annually when hunters 
fall from tree stands. 

► If you hunt on private land, be sure to obtain permission 
from the landowner and respect his or her property as if 
it were your own. Scout the area you plan to hunt so you 
know where the boundaries, houses, roads, fences and 
livestock are located on the property. 

► If you do not kill your deer or turkey instantly, make 
every effort to find the wounded animal. Permission is 
required to enter private land. 




► Clean and care for your game properly. 

► Pick up all litter including spent ammunition. Leaving an 
area better than the way you found it is a sign of thanks 
for the privilege of hunting. 

► Report observed violations of the law to a conservation 
agent or local sheriff as soon as possible. 

► If you are involved in a firearms-related accident, the law 
requires that you identify yourself and render assistance; 
failure to do so is a Class 'A' misdemeanor. 

► Develop your skills and knowledge, and share them 
with others. 

► Know and obey all wildlife laws. 

► Know and follow the rules of gun safety. 

► Respect the rights of hunters, nonhunters and 
landowners. 

► Make every effort to retrieve and use all game. 

► Respect the land and all wildlife. 

► Be sensitive to others when displaying harvested game. 

► Remember, hunting is not a competitive sport. 



Help catch wildlife violators 



Each year, conservation agents spend time tracking down poachers who disregard regulations protecting wildlife. 
Here are some of the illegal activities that agents dealt with last year: 

► hunting from the road 

► disposing of carcasses and other body parts in streams, rivers, ponds and lakes 

► harvesting a deer or turkey and putting someone else's transportation tag on it 

► using a spotlight to harvest deer or turkeys 

If you see someone involved in these or any illegal activities, call Operation Game Thief toll-free 1-800-392-1 111. 

Program the number into your cell phone so you can act fast.

Share the Harvest 




The Share the Harvest program in 
Missouri provides a way for deer 
hunters to donate venison to the 
needy. This program is administered 
by the Conservation Federation 
of Missouri and the Missouri 
Department of Conservation. 

During the 201 deer seasons, 5,731 hunters donated 

305,643 pounds of venison. 

Donating is easy. Hunters who want to participate simply 

take their deer to an approved meat processor (listed below) 




and let the processor know how much venison they wish to 
donate. The processor will package the meat, which will be 
picked up by the local sponsoring organization and taken to 
a participating charitable agency for distribution. 

The cost of processing the deer is the responsibility 
of the hunter. There are, however, funds available to help 
with processing cost when a whole deer is donated. The 
entire processing cost is paid by the Conservation Federation 
of Missouri and local sponsors during the urban zones 
portion of the firearms season for whole deer donations. Call 
your regional Department office for a list of participating

processors. During all other portions and seasons, the 
Conservation Federation of Missouri administers a state- 
wide program that directly reimburses the processor a 
pre-determined amount for each whole deer donated. That 
allows the processor to reduce the processing fee to the 
hunter at the time of donation. In addition, many processors 
have local money available that allows the deer to be 
donated free or at greatly reduced cost. Be sure to contact 
individual processors to determine what funds are 
available at that particular location. 

State-wide sponsors of the cost-reduction program 



include the Conservation Department, Shelter Insurance, 
Bass Pro Shops, the Conservation Federation of Missouri, 
Missouri Chapter Whitetails Unlimited, Missouri Chapter 
Safari Club International, Missouri Chapter National Wild 
Turkey Federation, Drury Hotels, Enterprise Holdings Inc., 
Midway USA Inc., Missouri Deer Hunters Assoc, Pyramid 
Home Health Services and Wells Fargo Bank. To learn more

Resident and nonresident deer harvests 



Some Missouri resident deer hunters have the mistaken 
notion that nonresident deer hunters outnumber the resi- 
dents. In reality, nonresident hunters are a small minority. 

For example, last year 91 9,595 firearms deer hunting 
permits were issued. Of those, 891,807, or 97 percent, were 
purchased by Missouri residents. 

What about deer harvest? Of the 229,736 deer taken 
during the firearms deer season, 21 8,656, or 95 percent, 



were taken by resident hunters. The same is true for the 
archery season; 93 percent of the deer taken last year were 
taken by Missouri residents. 

At managed hunts, Missouri residents made up 99 per- 
cent of participants. 

We should remember that many nonresident hunters are 
former residents who return to Missouri to hunt with family 
and friends. We welcome all responsible and ethical hunters.
